225--Arizona: Havasupai, Abandoned Mines & Miserable Mule Rides
@ CherieSpotting     Jul 17 2004 - 15:48 PST
cherie writes: There are 3 ways to exit Havasupai Indian Reservation.

1) Hike (for studs and Olympic athletes)
2) Helicopter (for rich people and wusses)
3) Mule rides (for psychos and idiots)

We chose poorly. Even with my natural built-in extra padding, the 10-mile mule ride was miserable. My mighty mule ran most of the way and tried to shove (unsuccessfully) other mules off the cliff.

But the unparalleled raw beauty of Havasupai was worth the extreme effort it took to get there (and get back home.)

The Supai believe that it is their duty in life to protect their pristine land. Havasupai is a magical and peaceful place, where only the water rushes.

For more information visit the Havasupai Tribe website.
